The St Peter Parish region
Palm Villa is positioned equidistant from Speightstown and Mile and a Quarter. Both have a petrol stations and a supermarket, however Speightstown is much the larger and offers a far greater range of shopping outlets. Holetown is approximately a 20 minute drive away, with Bridgetown the capital a further 25 minutes.
Barbados offers a range of spectator sports including horseracing at the Garrison Savannah course, cricket at the Kensington Oval and polo at Holders. All are exciting, friendly and inexpensive.
The nearest major supermarket is Jordans in Speightstown, 5 minutes by car from the villa. Speightstown also offers banks, shops, restaurants, bars and a local fruit and vegetable market. The west coast is blessed with many fine restaurants as well as more family orientated eateries and beach bars. The world famous Cliff restaurant is 30 minutes away. All major water-sports are available at Almond Beach which is only a 3 minute drive away. Deep-sea fishing trips, yacht charters and submersible tours are available from Bridgetown.
Bajan activities are not only restricted to the coast. There are many interesting places to visit including old Colonial Plantation Houses many of which are now interesting museums. The local Barbados Wildlife Reserve at Farley Hill affords the opportunity to amble through lush Mahogany groves amongst free roaming monkeys, deer, otters, agouti and tortoise.
Bridgetown itself is definitely worth a visit. The colonial churches, museums and shops offer an interesting day out; for instance, how many of us know that Bridgetown was host to Admiral Lord Nelson and George Washington?
